Antiquarian Anabaptist

Apologetics from an Anabaptist perspective

By faith, not by sight

“To be honest, I believe part of the desire to ‘know God’s will for my life’ is based on fear and results in paralysis. We are scared to make mistakes, so we fret over figuring out God’s will. We wonder what living according to His will would actually look and feel like, and we are scared to find out.  We forget that we were never promised a twenty-year plan of action; instead, God promises multiple times in Scripture never to leave or forsake us.”
